The default display for results from WorldCat searches now features materials held by libraries.

Most WorldCat search results now automatically display records according to the number of libraries holding the item. When records for materials held by many libraries appear at the top of results lists, users will be more likely to identify materials held in their own library or another familiar library. Users may also continue to rank search results using the previously available relevance or date options, or they may rank results by LIFO (last in/first out) order, which was the previous default display for WorldCat search results.
